We, at HSWA, value the life of each and every animal in our facility. HSWA screens for health, behavior, and temperament of each animal to the best of our ability during the time he/she has been in our care. However, there is always a chance that an animal may display behaviors later that were unseen at the shelter. In addition, an animal may be ill at the time of admission or adoption without showing any clinical signs of such illness. Please be aware that you are fully responsible for any expenses from the time of adoption forward.
I certify that the information provided is complete and correct to the best of my knowledge. I authorize HSWA to verify the information on my adoption application.
We microchip our cats and dogs before they leave the building. We register the microchip with your information as part of your adoption fee; however, it is your responsibility to keep the microchip information up to date throughout the animal’s life.
The emergency contact should be someone other than yourself, and at a telephone number different than yours. It should be someone who will always know how to contact you if your registered telephone number becomes disconnected. The microchip is registered through 24PetWatch.
